Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
Tackling projects both teeny and titanic, All in One Maintenance provides simple and straightforward home-improvement solutions for kitchens, bathrooms, and more. All in One will work with homeowners to apply their wrench-wielding talents where they are most needed, whether they are asked to fix a leaky toilet, install a new closet door, or repair a cracked liberty bell. Over the course of two hours ($50/hour), All in One can replace a finicky faucet, re-screen a window, or install appliances such as dishwashers or microwaves. Though today's deal does not cover materials, All in One is happy to use materials provided by the homeowner or purchase the necessary materials and present the homeowners with a receipt for all store-purchased items. All in One can also apply their efforts to larger remodeling assignments, including fixing faulty roofing, installing new ceramic tile, or reinforcing Parthenon replicas made out of popsicle sticks.
The pest police at Bug & Weed Mart outfit beleaguered homeowners with the necessary tools to beat back incursions of insects, rodents, and weeds. A regimen of Maxforce Professional Ant Bait ($23.99) removes pesky crumb-snatchers while keeping pets safe, and Gentrol Roach/Bedbug Sterilant does away with nocturnal ne'er-do-wells ($12.99). The Spray Doc Professional Pump Sprayer ($36) conjures up an anti-weed spell through its brass wand and nozzle, teleporting encroaching foliage to an extradimensional plant jail. No winged intruder goes unpunished with the Maxforce Professional Fly Killer ($14.99). To aid in the ongoing rodent resistance, the staff will provide step-by-step instructions on the proper use of all products, and will grease and clean sprayers free of charge.
